Wanted: Dead - Exclusive Story Trailer

Not to be outdone by its frantic ultra-violent action, this story trailer for Wanted: Dead introduces a world that - even by Cyberpunk standards - is absolutely bonkers. It not only features a host of gory new gameplay footage but sets up heroine Hannah Stone's place in this retro-futuristic take on Hong Kong as she battles hordes of cyber goons and chills with her pet cat. Wanted: Dead brings brutal challenge & stunning combat to PC & Consoles in Q4 2022. The new trailer highlights a blend of intriguing sci-fi story and thrilling limb-severing action coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S & PC.
 
Really cool looking game, likes others said definitely has that mid-tier PS2 action game feel to it. Stuff nobody remembers now, like Samuari Western, Gungrave, Crimson Tears, Chaos Legion, Dead to Rights... The setting kinda has a bit of that old Suda vibe too, like Killer is Dead and Shadows of the Damned.

I love how they purposely masculinized/uglified the protagonist because they think that's what'll sell in the west now. Meanwhile every supporting female character is your typical anime babe.

Bring it on. We need more of these mid tier character action games. Nothing wrong with a 6 to 8 hour game that has replay value due to unlockables, new playstyles or stuff like that. Western devs wont scratch that itch since its all about bloated open world or SNES like metroidvanias with nothing in between.

Whats funny is that even if they tried to make her ugly still looks better than Aloy, specially in Forbidden West. Seems she made one too many visits to Outback Stakehouse from one game to the other. Japanese devs just like Yoko Taro said, they really really like girls and theres nothing wrong with that.

I didn't think I would see a jab at Horizon Forbidden West in here
